Heather: I remember Aunt Jeannie’s corn crib next door to our house on East Greenwich Avenue.

Audrey: They would pull corn up by roots and stack the corn in the corn crib. A person goes in the corn crib and pulls the corn off the stalk. They shell the corn outside the crib and cook the corn inside.

Oh there are two squirrels jumping back and forth. They are either playing or fighting. I do not know which. Now they are just looking at each other! (Laughter)

They weigh me here at Alpine in my chair! I always weighed 110 or 115 lbs. I like to be 110. I made sure I never got over 112 lbs. Now I am 129 lbs! That walker. I never use it! The caretakers are all very nice. I can’t find any fault with any of them.
